This morning on CBS, Gayle King interviewed Pulitzer-Prize winning author, Lawrence Wright on his new medical thriller and our Books-A-Million President's Pick, The End of October. This riveting novel feels like it was taken straight from our headlines today. Dr. Henry Parsons travels across the world trying to stop the spread of a new and dangerous virus on behalf of the World Health Organization. Dr. Parsons is an appealing, albeit unusual, protagonist working tirelessly to find the origin and cure for the disease. Books-A-Million CEO, Terry Finley called this book "among the best of its genre" and we couldn't agree more.  As packed with suspense as it is with the fascinating history of viral diseases, Lawrence Wright has given us a full-tilt, electrifying, one-of-a-kind thriller. If you're looking for a new book to keep you on your toes, this is the perfect next read for you!
